Rattle Snake Screening – 8 December 2019

WORDS WEEKEND festival will be taking place at SAGE GATESHEAD on 6-8 December 2019

We are delighted to announce that Open Clasp are a Words Weekend charitable partner! Words Weekend will host a screening of our filmed play Rattle Snake based on real life stories of women who have faced and survived domestic abuse. The event will feature a Q+A with writer, director and cast, as a culmination event to the UN’S 16 days of action tackling domestic abuse and coercive control.

 “We’re so excited to be part of the incredible line up at the first ever Words Weekend, and it’s a real honour to be a charitable partner for the festival – we’re both so passionate about sharing real life stories and it’s a fantastic opportunity to share Rattle Snake with a wider audience and raise awareness of coercive control.” Catrina McHugh MBE, writer of Rattle Snake and Artistic Director of Open Clasp

The festival, programmed by leading literary event producers Fane Productions will feature an exceptional international line-up whilst also championing diversity, accessibility and the rich talent and culture of the North East.
